They hooked up in the most unusual circumstances, when The Bachelor's Blake Garvey ditched Sam Frost, insisting he had made a mistake and was indeed in love with runner-up Louise Pillidge (yep, we still get head spins).
Now, after 18 months, the romance between the reality stars has come to an end despite undergoing three months of counselling in a bid to mend the cracks.
“We were walking on eggshells around each other,” the 33-year-old told New Idea. “Always trying to say the right thing…”
Louise also told the magazine that it was Blake's decision to call it quits, and admits she struggled to come to terms with the fact that she was not his first choice.
One of Louise's friends told the mag a month ago, that the pair were headed for a split.
“They’ve been trying to live the fairytale, but the truth is Blake doesn’t always treat her like a princess,” the friend revealed.
“He can be moody and switch from freezing her out to talking her down. We hate to see it because she’s a beautiful soul and deserves better.”
